The Peoples Democratic PDP (PDP) has dismissed Oshiomhole’s statement that there would not be swearing-in in Bayelsa State following Supreme Court judgement on Thursday sacking David Lyon as State governor.
The party warned Oshiomhole to steer clear of Bayelsa State as his apparent plot to trigger violence in the state had failed.
It advised Oshiomhole to be careful with his utterances and “not to use any forms of venomous garrulity and clear misuse of language to destabilize our nation and truncate our hard earned democracy.”
Also, the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, berated Oshiomhole, and called on the Federal Government to warn him (Oshiomhole) to stop making inflammatory remarks capable of destabilising the country.
Wike, in an interview with journalists in Port Harcourt, condemned Oshiomhole for saying there would be no swearing-in of the PDP candidate in Bayelsa State.
The governor said, “The Federal Government should warn Oshiomhole to stop making remarks that will destabilise Nigeria. What he is doing in Edo State is not proper and he should not bring it to the rest of the Niger Delta.”
